Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu makes ESPN insider's all-rookie team
Friday, Mathieu, who had 68 total tackles, two interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble in 13 games, was named to ESPN insider Mel Kiper Jr.'s post-season squad of first-year players.
S Tyrann Mathieu, Arizona: He could also qualify at cornerback, or nickelback, but I put him here based on how the Cardinals used him. Great season, injury aside.
In addition to making Kiper's all-rookie team, Mathieu was named the No. 12 best rookie of 2013. But he wasn't the only Cardinal player to make the list.
Kiper also listed running back Andre Ellington as his No. 22 rookie. Ellington, a sixth-round pick out of Clemson, finished second on Arizona in rushing yards (652) and rushing touchdowns (3).
